Pros

It is an innovative and growing company. They are investing in new state of the art technology to keep up with current and upcoming business needs.

Cons

Some of the management staff do not know how manage and motivate. They think it's all about them!
Bureaucracy and office politics are the Achilles' heel of the company. So much negative energy spent on those... it is a shame.

Advice to Management

Upper management should keep their ears to the ground and "do the rounds" from time to time. You are getting only half of the story if your information only comes from your direct reports.

    Pros

    Discounts, first dibs on new products.

    Cons

    Customers, no reading policy, even when there are no customers in the store.

    Advice to Management

    Keep a closer eye on your store managers that take advantage and treat their employees horribly.

    Pros

    Had been a stable environment

    Cons

    "Rewiring" mostly hurt who you would expect - Front Line Supervisors.

    Advice to Management

    I don't think they would read this.

    Walgreen's participates in too much of a "groupthink" environment. The mindsets of those in management or trying to move up the ladder. No new ideas or better outcomes come from this. Generally, the new person is the same as the last.
